Study abroad

In summer 2018, a group of Health & Sports Science students traveled to Spain & Portugal. Program courses examined nutritional and organizational characteristics of each country and looked at how research is communicated and performed in different cultures. Interaction with local faculty and students exposed students to health and sport professions in Spain and Portugal and allowed for students and faculty to connect course content to each country’s environment.
